Misfit Shine 2 Swimmer's Edition

 

The Misfit Shine 2 Swimmer's Edition makes it easy to automatically count your laps, as well as all your activity. It's a good looking device for swimmers, but not the only one.

Swim time and laps easily tracked. Includes smartphone notification alerts. Supports a range of activities. Elegant design. Multiple ways to wear. Comfortable and lightweight. Good app. Reliable metrics. Can control supported smart devices.

Unattractive wrist strap. No true display; LED indicator lights only. Requires mobile app. Doesn't include pregnancy or cycle-tracking options.

Comparisons and Conclusions Among trackers for swimmers, the Shine 2 is a fine option, albeit a simple one. I encourage you to weigh it head-to-head against the Misfit Ray. The Ray is far and away my favorite tracker of the year from a fashion...

Misfit Shine 2 review

 

I lost my Shine 2 somewhere near Park Avenue and 27th street.

Clean-looking, well-designed app: works with iOS and Android phones; improved Bluetooth syncing; waterproof for swimming or showering; internal battery lasts six months and can be replaced; automatically tracks sleep and adds vibrations for silent...

The included strap and clip are terrible: They don't securely hold the Shine 2, nearly guaranteeing it'll be lost sooner or later. No heart rate tracking; LED lights show daily progress and the time, but can't show other data.

The Shine 2 is a decent fitness tracker that's waterproof and vibrates, dogged by a fatal flaw: it just won't stay on our wrist.

Misfit Shine 2 review: A slim fitness tracker with loads of features

 

Resolution season is upon us! The Misfit Shine 2 and Misfit Shine 2 Speedo Edition are great options to help you meet your fitness goals in the new year.

The Misfit Shine 2 is very thin and light. It's comfortable to wear, and does a good job of tracking your activities. The app is easy to use an offers quite a few basic and advanced features.

You'll want to be sure you get the newer style of strap, since the old version caused me to lose my first tracker. Some may not like the lack of a digital display for the time, or that the clock can be a few minutes off since it rounds to the nearest 5...

I said at the very beginning that there are loads of different fitness trackers to choose from. The Misfit Shine 2 offers a very slim design packed full of features that will cover the needs of most. If you’re a swimmer, the upgrade to the Speedo...

Misfit Shine 2 Review

 

A unique looking tracker that does an alright job counting steps, but is missing many features that its competitors have

Waterproof, minimalistic, easy to use

Few features, no heart rate monitoring, sub par fitness tracking

The is a tiny, sleek fitness tracker that breaks the mold when compared to other brands out there, Ditching the screen and the rechargeable battery in favor of a circular LED display and a coin cell. This model didn't quite score well enough to merit...

Misfit Shine 2 Review

 

The Misfit Shine 2 is one of the best wristband pedometers for walking because of the many ways you can wear it and its completely waterproof design. Although it doesn't win any awards for step count accuracy, if you just want a better picture of your...

The Misfit Shine 2 comes with a clip and a wristband, so you can wear it many ways, even as a necklace.

It doesn’t track calories burned very accurately, and its steps taken readout is slightly less accurate than the best pedometers in our review.

This highly versatile and waterproof pedometer is easily the most fashionable device we reviewed.

Misfit Shine 2 Review: Good for Basics

 

For just $100, the Misfit Shine 2 does a great job of tracking your basic fitness metrics in a sleek, lightweight form. Its waterproof body makes it a great swimming companion, and its replaceable battery lasts for months at a go. Plus, you can use the...

Excellent battery life ; Waterproof ; Sleek, lightweight design ; Ability to control other devices ; Affordable

LEDs hard to see in direct sunlight ; Food-tracking is limited

The waterproof Misfit Shine 2 tracks only the most basic of fitness and sleep metrics, but it will last you awfully long and cost you just $99.99.

Misfit Shine 2 Review: In Depth

 

Misfit Shine 2 Review: This ultra-slim and light fitness tracker from Speedo is pleasingly versatile. Here's our full Misfit Shine 2 review.

Skinny and light ; Great battery life ; Versatile ; Good for swimmers

Not too durable ; Limited feedback ; Feature-light

The Shine 2 is definitely geared towards swimmers, as you’d expect from Speedo. That super-light waterproof design, lap tracking and excellent battery life makes it desirable for anyone who regularly hits their local pool, and the flexibility is a...

Misfit Shine 2 fitness and sleep monitor review

 

Track your steps, calories, sleep and swimming activity with this £80 activity monitor that offers vibration for notifications too.

Overall, we'd recommend the Misfit Shine 2. It's an all-rounder with some added perks including the haptic feedback for notifications and calls, which we've found enormously useful. Comparing it with rival Fitbit we think it's been priced well, and not...
